Must Read: Targeted Advertising Is Ruining the Internet and Breaking the World

Lately, I have announced in my German Blog to quit using Facebook and Instagram. I have switched from Android to iOS. And my Company will be switching to iOS and Macs as well.

Reason for that is Googles and Facebooks ongoing hunt for personal information, ignorance of Privacy and their business model to serve you targeted ads. Its not them alone, though! I for myself decided not to help them in doing so and I just found a wonderful article which summarizes the problem way better then I would be able to.

So, I urge you to head over to https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/xwjden/targeted-advertising-is-ruining-the-internet-and-breaking-the-world.

Read that article. Understand the message. Understand the consequences. And act. Even the smallest change in your behaviour, the decision to buy a pricey (or an used) iPhone next time or to install an Ad-blocking tool could change the world a little bit.

Read. Understand. Act.
